“Take a stand, stand by them…Emotional strength can be the most formidable opponent service members face in their efforts to keep America safe…” These are the words of encouragement decorating a Department of Defense (DoD) website. It is no surprise that focused attention is being placed on suicide prevention and awareness given the arrival of National Suicide Prevention week. Related articles housed on this site provide glimpses of Service members who have bravely shared their struggles with mental illness, including barriers in their journey towards getting help. Despite an increase in initiatives promoting military mental health, many Service members fear that getting treated for mental health issues will have adverse effects on their career.What Does the DoD say about Service members getting mental health treatment?In a statement surrounding military service members getting mental health treatment, current Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel relayed it’s a… “choice that embodies moral courage, honor and integrity.” (September 3, 2013)The Department of Defense clearly advocates for military personnel to engage in help-seeking behavior and sees this as a sign of strength. The DoD’s attempt to dispel stigmas attached to getting mental health services while in the military has been reflected in previous statements as well…“Seeking help is a sign of strength, not a sign of weakness, it is a sign of strength and courage. We’ve got to do all we can to remove the stigma that still too often surrounds mental health care issues.” (Former Secretary of Defense Leon Panetta, June 22, 2012)How has the DoD Supported Mental Health Treatment?The DoD has invested over $100 million in research on mental health and substance abuse which often co-occur with suicide. In November 2011, the DoD’s Office established the Defense Suicide Prevention Office (DSPO) which aims to prevent and reduce the impact of suicide on military personnel and their families.“DSPO strives to help foster a climate that encourages Service members to seek help for their behavioral health issues.”DSPO promotes utilization of a community-based approach in preventing suicide which is highlighted in their September 2013 summit. Information related to suicide, resources, policies and prevention links tailored to each branch of the military can be found on the DSPO website.Another organization connected to the DoD is the DHA Connected Health (formerly the National Center for Telehealth & Technology). Recently, T2 has provides mobile phone applications (apps) that promote psychological health and support traumatic brain injury recovery of service members.Stay tuned for this week’s Resource Discovery blog which explores a guide to help military family members understand and assist their loved ones struggling with mental health disorders.

Odisha farmers’ incomes grew more than seven times over a span of 13 years, the Naveen Patnaik government has claimed.The government, in its recently released draft Agriculture Policy 2019, says an average Odisha farmer earned around ₹7,731 per month, or around ₹92,772 per year.Draft policy“In 2002-03, his average monthly income was ₹1,062, which means that in the 13 years between 2002-03 and 2015-16, Odisha farmers’ incomes grew more than seven times or at a CAGR (compound annual growth rate) of 16.5% in nominal terms and 8.4% in real terms,” it states.The draft policy states that comparing the CAGR with other Indian States, Odisha’s growth rate emerges as the highest in the country during that period.“During the same period, average Indian farmer’s income grew from ₹2,115 to ₹8,931 which is at a CAGR of 11.7% in nominal and 3.7% in real terms. Odisha is fast catching up with other Indian States. Odisha’s farmer incomes grew much faster than even the rate at which its own agricultural GDP grew,” it says.According to the draft policy, between 2002-03 and 2015-16, Odisha’s agricultural GDP grew at a CAGR of 3.7% and its farmer incomes grew at more than double that rate at 8.4%.Odisha is largely a rural-agrarian economy. Close to 83% of its people live in rural areas and about 61.8% of its 17.5 million work-force is employed in agriculture. In the 16 years since the beginning of this century (2000-01 to 2016-17), Odisha’s agricultural GDP nearly doubled in real terms, clocking an average annual growth rate of about 4.5%, higher than the India average of 3.1%. The State accounts for 3% of India’s agricultural GDP.
